The for quarterback for the Atlanta Falcons is signing on with the Philadelphia Eagles. The National football League suspended Vick indefinitely in August 2007 after he pleaded guilty to a federal charge of  a lucrative dogfighting operation at a home he owned in Virginia.  The NFL reinstated him last month and will be monitored for 6 weeks (by October) based on his progress.  The 29-year-old quarterback was freed from prison in Leavenworth, Kansas while there, he earned only 12 cents an hour as an overnight janitor.  The Pennsylvania Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals are extremely disappointed of not only his release, but his contract with the Philadelphia Eagles; the CEO says Philidelphia is a city of dog lovers and people of the Philidelphia community may not welcome Michael Vick.
